technology industries of the future and i think that plays an important role. you know the obama vision was one where they thought better suited the country. and there is no question on social issues. whether it is women's health care, immigration, gay rights. there are a set of issues particularly for younger voters so, people vote very, very carefully. the economy was a dominant issue. i think that is why ultimately some people chose the president to continue the journey we are on. now quickly in terms of democracy, you know we don't know this for sure, but we could be seeing very different elections. that of that in 2010, 14, maybe 18 will be quite a bit different. the comments i made two years ago were predicated on what we thought would happen in a presidential year. the latino turnout was surging. president winning more of the latino votes but even winning the cuban votes. you saw young votes exceeding the turnout from four years ago surprising most analysts. you saw african american turnout. you saw the excitement of the first african american president was four years ago.

american involvement right now what is very clear is that this administration, the obama administration, would like president morsi of egypt to play a constructive role in getting the rockets to stop coming from hamas over into israel. they have gone as far as the tel aviv area. he has urged president morsi to try to get hamas to back off, and he has also urged prime minister netanyahu not to go in to gaza. at this point that's what we know that's been said in private. that's also been out will in public. so it is a dicey situation. not just because it always is in the middle east, but because the middle east has chapged so much over the arab spring has new leadership that can you no longer go to hosni mubarak, the former president of egypt, and say you immediate to stop this in gaza. it just doesn't work like that anymore, and it makes what's already a tinderbox even more toxic and scarier, if that's possible. >> we'll see the results of the arab spring as it relates to israel and to gaza. candy crowley, thank you. be sure, everyone, to keep it here. state of the union with candy crowl

. >> willow owe. >> i'm listening, lz. >> president obama is not handing out gifts, all right? he's being a president. the only thing i found really consistent with this is that romney has been essentially hating on half of the country for almost two years. i didn't necessarily find his comments out of line with everything else he has talked b. we've been characterizing them as gaffes. i've been trying to say this is who he really is. he really believes half the country is a bunch of moochers. i think what's really interesting, if you strip away all the areas, the urban areas that's predominantly minority, right? he still lost a whole bunch of white people, too. the man is refusing to take personal responsibility, which is the height of irony when you think about what he went around and talked about with 47% of the people not being personally responsible for their own lives. here he lost an election, mostly because of the fact that he was a bad option. the gop knows he was a bad option. that's why they fought him so hard during the primary, because he was a bad choice. but they ende
